ANDI EIGENMANN was reprimanded by a netizen for allegedly ruining the career of Albie Casiño who she then claimed was the dad of her daughter Ellie.

Later, it would turn out that the real dad is Jake Ejercito. The netizen said Andi should apologize to Albie who was bashed that time.

Andi replied in her social media account that she has actually apologized to Albie a long time ago. She then asked if anyone remember that she was physically abused by Albie then.

Here’s her full statement to the netizen and maybe Albie would like to reply and defend himself. One thing you can say, Andi is really very articulate and writes very well.

“Not that I owe you any sort of explanation, but since you’re the only one that has tagged me in this, I actually already have apologized. (You can ask him that too.) 

"You and the rest of the public are not aware, because I never owed you that apology.

"I owed that to him. You see, it’s one thing not to have given forgiveness. That’s something I can’t control. But it’s also another thing to say otherwise.

“I think the fact that I’ve been blessed to have such a wonderful life after everything is enough proof that I’ve grown to become far different from the person that I once was. My past struggles have taught me that we can never really please everybody.

"That no matter what, there will always be people like you who will be quick to judge others without knowing their story. There will always be those who will see only what they want to, and hear only what they want to.

“Did any of you even remember that the root of this controversy was because I was physically abused? Right. I don’t think so. But you know what? I’m OK with it. This is exactly why I found my happiness li­ving away from the limelight, and all the constant judgment from people you don’t even know, people whose opinions should never have mattered. But did. It still did. Because I was only human.

“Through all this I’ve learned that kindness is the key no matter what. And that has definitely done me so much good. You obviously don’t know me, so you probably wouldn’t know.

"Nevertheless I want you to try that too. I know times have been tough on all of us lately. But it always, always pays to be kind.”
